Jeanette is ready to play again

It's been almost four years since Jeanette Pohlen was picked by the Indiana Fever in the first round of the 2011 WNBA draft.

As a rookie, Jeanette led the WNBA in 3-point shooting percentage (.468), and helped Indiana to the WNBA title in 2012 despite succumbing to a torn left ACL in the WNBA Finals vs. Minnesota.

She played briefly in 2013 and was preparing for a healthy 2014 when she tore her left Achillles' tendon prior to training camp.

She is ready to play again and has signed a 2015 training camp contract with the Fever.
